#SpankOrTreat 2014 - Snowbound - A #PNR #FreeRead by Tara Quan (Me!)

Thanks for pausing to peruse my humble stand at the Spank or Treat 2014 Halloween Extravaganza. Before I present my brand spanking new short story (pun intended), let me get some administrative details out of the way.


Main Prize: The event rules are to the right, under the nifty author button. Read carefully if you want to ensure your entries count toward the grand prize (which includes a Kindle Fire)!

Stop Prize: Comments on this post will be entered into a drawing for my spooky spanking ebook trio, pictured below.


Bonus Prize: This has nothing to do with the event, but I'm currently running a $15 Raffecopter Giveaway to celebrate my new witchy release, Flirting with Fire. One of the entry options is leaving a comment here, so you might as well...

An excerpt from Snowbound was originally posted during the event. You can now read the entire story in the Spank or Treat 2014 Anthology, where you will find multiple doses of spanking and hanky-panky.

Here's a plug for my witchy new release. (If you could click one of the links to read the free sample chapter, I'd be oh so grateful. *bats eyelashes*) 

A Paranormal Romantic Comedy by Tara Quan

A Paranormal Romantic Comedy by Tara Quan

Flirting with Fire

by Tara Quan

Apprentice witch Catalina Gato is prohibited from assuming her human form in front of her new employer without his express permission. Since he doesn’t know he’s a warlock, he can’t give it, leaving her in a familiar’s limbo. To make matters worse, she’s barred from leaving his house, and her attempts to enlighten him of his true nature results in burnt notes, charred walls, and exploding laptops.

On All Hallows’ Eve, she gets one night of freedom. Deciding some no-strings-attached sex might take the edge off the intense attraction she feels for her clueless boss, she signs up for Madame Eve’s service. When she meets her masked mystery date at the Castillo Capital, she realizes she might have gotten much more than she bargained for.

After being gifted a one-night stand from his annoying best friend, attorney Leo Difuoco reluctantly ventures to the Castillo Capital to celebrate Halloween. When he meets his oddly familiar green-eyed date in a Cat Woman costume, flames literally ignite, sparks magically fly, and life as he knows it changes forever.
